i just received my second order from shapeways, a pair of swords.

The sword's blade splits into 2 blades(not physically come apart, but are spaced) , but unfortunately one of the blades warped so it is no longer straight. I got one printed in WSF and FUD.

The blade in question is 2.5mm thick with a length of 6cm.

the blade beside it is the same length, and thickness, but it didn't warp. Now I have 2 questions.

1)What should I do so future printed blades do not warp? (keep in mind I have the same design printed with 1.5mm thick blades with no warping)

2)What can I do to the current blades to warp them a little straighter?

Below is an previous image of the sword (with 1.5mm blades, not the current 2.5mm ones), it was the smaller blade that warped.

Thanks for any help!
